Installing PacketTracer on a Linux VirtualBox

Download PacketTracer from the Cisco network Academy.

The download should go into your downloads folder unless otherwise specified by you.

Open Terminal and locate your Downloads folder using “ls -s” to list the files and directories in a directory. “CD ” to navigate to the directory you want.

When you find the directory that houses your file you want to change it’s permissions to allow you to execute apon it. You would use:

chmod -x Packet*.bin

Next you can execute the file with:

sudo bash Packet*.bin

After you agree to the EULA(end user license agreement) the package will install.

Installing guest additions in Virtualbox on Linux

Here is a link I found to work from me. I am running Windows 7. I have VirtualBox installed and a copy of Ubuntu 11 something. I wanted to use terminal to install guest additions.

Basicly I ran two lines:

sudo apt-get install dkms
-A package will install itself. Won’t take long.

sudo apt-get install virtualbox-guest-additions
-Guest additions download and installs itself. This will take some time.
